“What an unexpected pleasure!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

We happened on this establishment while exploring the area during the busiest weekend of the year - the World's Longest Yard Sale! But what a pleasure! The waitstaff was very friendly. While extremely busy, we were greeted almost immediately. My mother, a Hoosier well experienced in tasting Breaded Pork Tenderloin, claimed the one served here is the best she's eaten. We had to agree it was delicious. The owner/manager checked on our table more than once; he roamed the restaurant continuously, talking to guests and helping his staff. The prices are reasonable and the servings well proportioned. We think you will enjoy a stop for a meal whenever you're in the area. Currently they are open Thursday through Saturday. Enjoy!

“Awesome food, especially smoked chicken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

They have the best smoked chicken, hands down, that I have ever eaten! I am a true Southern Belle, born and raised in the South, and honey let me tell you, I know BBQ, and being Southern Baptist, I know chicken, too. (smile). If you don't try this place, then Bless Your Heart, you are missing a treat. The prices are great and the folks that own it are very friendly and genuine. And, they serve drinks in a pint sized Mason jar---can't get any more Southern than that. I was too full to try the desserts, but from the look of rapture on the other diner's faces, the desserts must be great, too. This place is out in the middle of nowhere, but I can assure you, it is worth the drive. They have moved from their old address in Dogtown, AL and are now closer to Leesburg, AL (between Leesburg and Collinsville, AL).

“Best Banana Pudding Anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

Excellent food, great service and the prices are very reasonable. They have great deserts, but the Grilled Pork Chop is better than most restaurants Steak. They are only open Thursday, Friday & Saturday right now but it is worth the wait and the drive...........
